The Adventures of Tintin ... and Addie

Billions of blistering barnacles! Why has no one ever told me about the marvelous adventures of Tintin?!

It has everything: a young journalist, planes, steamships, pirates and more!

The Adventures of Tintin is a 2011 adventure film based on The Adventures of Tintin, a series of 24 comic books created by Belgian artist Hergé (Georges Remi).

The film is based on three of the original comic books: The Crab with the Golden Claws (1941), The Secret of the Unicorn (1943), and Red Rackham's Treasure (1944).

Adventure-seeking Belgian reporter Tintin is shopping at a local market where he buys a detailed reproduction of the Unicorn, a 17th century ship captained by Sir Francis Haddock. A mysterious stranger issues a dire warning, and then the persistent Ivanovich Sakharine appears out of nowhere to make a generous offer on the newly acquired miniature.

When the boat is stolen Tintin discovers something the thieves had overlooked, but gets kidnapped while chasing a notorious pickpocket. Upon regaining consciousness, Tintin finds himself and his dog Snowy aboard the ship the SS Karaboudjan. Though Sakharine and his men have taken over the ship from Captain Archibald Haddock, Tintin, Haddock, and Snowy make a daring escape while uncovering Sakharine's true intentions.

The race is on to solve a centuries-old mystery only Haddock, Tintin and Snowy can solve.

And moi, of course.
